  journal={Great Lakes Entomologist},
,-\oout 43.000 larvae and 1800 adults of Hydropsychidae from Wisconsin were studied. 1be5e included Diplectrona modesta, Macrostemum zebratum, Parapsyche apicalis, Poramyia flam, eight species of Ceratopsyche, and II species of Hydropsyche, but lJe,.:ause !:heir larvae cannot be identified the nine species of Cheumatopsyche known from Wisconsin were not included. Keys were developed to separate larvae of species of Ceratopsyche and Hydropsyche that were collected in Wisconsin or are likely to… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Revision of the males of the Hydropsyche scalaris group in North America (Trichoptera: Hydropsychidae)
Scanning electron microscopy, cross-sectioned material, careful hand dissections, and a summary of relevant literature were used to formulate a revised description of phallic morphology.
Life histories, abundance and distribution of some macroinvertebrates from a South Carolina, USA coastal plain stream
Groups of functionally-related species within the orders Odonata, Trichoptera and Coleoptera each exhibited possible temporal and/or spatial segregation.
Life Histories and Production of Cheumatopsyche analis and Hydropsyche betteni (Trichoptera: Hydropsychidae) in an Urban Virginia Stream
The production of both species thus was greatest below the impoundment, but peak production of the two species varied depending on the distance below the dam.
An Ecological Profile of Hydropsyche alternans (Trichoptera: Hydropsychidae) in Lake Superior, the Last Stronghold of a Once-Dominant Great Lakes Surf Zone Caddisfly
Simple Summary Prior to the invasion and spread of Dreissena mussels in the late 1980s, the nearshore waters of the Laurentian Great Lakes were home to diverse assemblages of native aquatic insects,
New state species records and noteworthy re-captures of Michigan (USA) Trichoptera
Five unique species, including several not seen in MI for over 70 years, are confirmed to be extant in the state, most notably Plectrocnemia sabulosa (Leonard & Leonard), MI’s only known endemic caddisfly.
Notes on A Collection Of Caddisflies (Trichoptera) from Carroll County, Iowa, U.S.A.
Abstract Six families, 18 genera, and 34 species of Trichoptera are reported from Carroll County in western Iowa of which 18 are new state records. Hydropyschidae, Hydroptilidae, and Leptoceridae
The Great Lakes Entomologist
Major improvements were made in using a biotic index of the arthropod fauna to evaluate organic stream pollution. All tolerance values were reevaluated, many were changed, and the scale for tolerance


Larval Identification and Instar Association in Some Species of Hydropsyche and Cheumatopsyche (Trichoptera: Hydropsychidae)
The use of Dyar's Rule is suggested as a taxonomic tool to associate young instars of coexisting hydropsychids with the more easily identified older instars.
Life history patterns of Hydropsyche bronta and H. morosa (Trichoptera: Hydropsychidae) in summer-warm rivers of southern Ontario
Life history patterns are described for Hydropsyche bronta and hydropsyche morosa in the Credit and Humber rivers of southern Ontario, and H. morosa appeared to be bivoltine while at least half of the H. brontA population at each of four sites was trivoltine.
Emergence phenology of trichoptera from six mile Creek, Erie County, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
Abstract An emergence trap was placed over a section of Six Mile Creek, a warm water stream which flows into Lake Erie and is located in Erie County, PA. Six families, 17 species, and 1782 specimens
An Evaluation of Some Techniques for the Collection and Analysis of Benthic Samples with Special Emphasis on Lotic Waters
A consideration of a large number of procedures for the collection and analysis of benthic samples, with particular emphasis on stream investigations and the importance of substrate particle size, reveals that only certain techniques are suitable.
